Magtein™ Magnesium L-Threonate 667mg 90 cap by NOW Foods

Magnesium (Mg) is an essential mineral best known for its role in bone and nervous system function. Recent research has demonstrated that it is also critical for normal brain health and normal cognitive function by maintaining the density and stability of neuronal synapses. However, most forms of Mg are not easily absorbed into the nervous system. Magtein™ is a patented form of Mg that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier for utilization in the brain. Laboratory studies indicate that Magtein™ supports brain health and may facilitate learning and memory, as well as a relaxed mood.**

Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body.81 In addition to support for cardiovascular82-86 and bone health,87,88 energy metabolism89,90 and mood,91-93 researchers are now focusing intensely on magnesium’s benefits for cognitive function.94

Unfortunately, it is very hard for your body to maintain optimal levels of magnesium in the brain.94 This problem is of special concern for maturing individuals, as magnesium deficiency increases over time.80

Most commercially available magnesium supplements are not readily absorbed into the nervous system. To overcome this obstacle, you can supplement with an innovative form of magnesium called Magtein™, shown to specifically target the aging brain and nervous system.

In pre-clinical models, L-threonate contained in Neuro-Mag™ boosted magnesium levels in spinal fluid by an impressive 15% compared to no increase with conventional magnesium.94 Even more compelling, animal models revealed improvements of 18% for short-term memory and 100% for long-term memory using the Magtein™ form of magnesium.94

The suggested daily dose of three Magtein™ Magnesium L-Threonate capsules provides 2,000 mg of magnesium L-threonate. While this supplies a modest 144 mg of elemental magnesium, its superior absorption into the bloodstream and nervous system make it a preferred supplemental choice.

NOW's Mission

The NOW mission is: To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods. In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW

Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development.
